Re: Rearrange Address and Places Parts Plugin

Thanks for the clarification.
I am not definitely going to do this, but reading the information on Gedcom 7 from the LDS I think it is implying that ‘Place’ is more like a legal entity, whereas the address is definitely one that can be used as a postal address so needs to be compete.

Subject: Re: [family-historian] Rearrange Address and Places Parts Plugin
The first thing to do is use Tools > Work with Data > Addresses and increase the number of Columns to 10 (or whatever you think you need).
You must decide how columns need to be reserved for Addresses.
Let us assume 5 for sake of argument. i.e. None of your Addresses needs more than 5 columns.
It also assumes that none of your Places needs more than 5 columns, because Address columns + Place columns must be no more than 10.
Run the Plugin and note that Address 1 to Address 5 will remain unchanged to Address columns intact.
In the Address 6 drop list select Place 1.
In the Address 7 drop list select Place 2.
and so on until
In the Address 10 drop list select Place 5.
That is it.
BTW: Why do you think this rearrangement is a good idea?
I would like to add the place to all my address entries. It must be my ‘senior moment’, but I can’t work out how to set this up in the plugin. Can anybody help please.
